Selena Gomez has released brand new music.
And it very clearly seems to focus on a famous old boyfriend.
Yes, we’re looking at you, Justin Bieber. (But you may want to look away right about now, before it’s too late.)
Back in March, Gomez and Bieber broke up, although source insisted at the time that this split was different from the MANY other times the stars parted ways.
They insisted this was merely a temporary setback for the singer, who had reconciled romantically in November, just a few months earlier.
However, now here we are in May and there are no real signs that Selena and Justin have been hanging out again.
Bieber is allegedly making himself as perfect as possible in order to appeal to his frequent girlfriend, but it doesn’t seem to be working.
Selena may truly be over Justin.
How do we know for sure?
Just consider the lyrics from her latest track, “Back To You.”
Gomez told Zane Lowe Thursday on Apple Music’s Beats 1 that this record is “special,” adding of the single:
“I want it to be a beautiful message in a really complicated way – but really fun.”
Will Bieber consider it beautiful, though? We somehow doubt it, not when the song appears to center on their romance and Selena’s regret over it.
We never got it right/Playing and replaying old conversations/Overthinking every word and I hate it/’Cause it’s not me, and what’s the point in hiding?
Everybody knows we got unfinished business/And I’d regret it if I didnâ€™t say this isn’t what it could be.
You could break my heart in two/But when it heals, it beats for you/I know it’s forward, but it’s true/I wanna hold you when Iâ€™m not supposed to.
On one hand here, Selena is freely admitting that she can’t resist Justin Bieber. She just can’t say no to his personality or his smile or those rock-hard abs.
But on the other hand… she’s sounding wistful, isn’t she?
She’s not sounding very excited over the fact that she always ends up with this unnamed individual, she’s just sounding resigned to it.
Indeed:Â Gomez has “completely moved on” from Bieber and is “not interested in getting back together with him anytime soon,” an insider tells E! News, echoing a sentiment we have heard before of course.
But why do we believe it now more than ever?
Gomez nearly lost her life last summer upon getting a kidney transplant.
She appears to be a new lease on life.
She’s more mature and more grounded than ever and she certainly appears to have more perspective than ever before.
“Selena is going in a different direction with her life,” this same source tells E!, adding:
“She’s had a lot of self-reflection time and it’s been good for her. She’s hanging out with friends and taking it easy.”
Clearly, we still would not be stunned if Selena does get back together with Justin.
“When I’m lying close to someone else, you’re stuck in my head, and I can’t get you out of it,” she sings in this track, adding:
“If I could do it all again, I know I’d go back to you.”
But WILL she?
Will Selena go back to Justin in real life?
This is the question, folks.
